Have you considered that your posture, and an absence of oxygen could bring on your headaches? Poor posture influences your respiratory system and blood circulation to the brain, which can trigger muscle stress – resulting in a headache. Integrate the following yoga postures daily to reduce and prevent headaches:

Seated Twist

Sit in a comfy seated position to begin. Turn from the tummy to the right, and place your right-hand man on the floor firmly behind your spine, and twist. Keep your shoulders down and your chest open. Unwind your eyes, jaw and tongue. Hold for 10 seconds breathing evenly. Go back to center and repeat on the opposite side.

Grabbing Opposite Elbows

Stand with your feet firmly grown on the floor, hip width apart. Clasp your elbows behind your back. Relax your eyes and jaw. Hold for 10 breaths uniformly, and release.

Gomukhasana Arms

Stand with feet securely grown on the floor. Raise your best arm into the air beside your best ear. Flex your ideal elbow. Reach your right hand behind your back, palm faces your back and location it down in between your shoulder blades. Bring your left arm behind your back and climb it up to clasp your hand. Hold for 10 seconds breathing evenly. Release and repeat on the other side.

Eagle Arms

Wrap your arms around your torso, best arm under left, hugging yourself. Bring your hands up, your left elbow rests in your best elbow. Rotate your hands, with your palms dealing with each other. Relax your eyes, jaw and shoulder blades. Hold for 10 seconds breathing equally. Release and repeat on the other side.

Standing Side Stretch

Plant your feet firmly on the floor. Raise your arms beside your head. Grab your left wrist with your right-hand man. On an exhalation, carefully stretch to the right, drawing your left arm and wrist with your right-hand man. Press your weight down to the left buttock. Hold for 10 seconds breathing evenly. Return to center and repeat on the other side.
